Gulf Coast Locals, BP Workers, Speaking Out

(1PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

Former BP worker speaks out.

I wonder what he’s afraid of, still ?

Apparently, BP runs a tight ship — perhaps it’s best to not cross them ?

Then again … other BP workers, are willing to speak out against BP’s business practices …

The Locals are ill.  And the Doctors are stumped.  That’s funny.

and not the “ha ha” type.

Some Congressmen attempt to hold BP Accountable, BUT …

All those sternly-worded Congressional Letters, really didn’t stop the Corexit,

from entering the “base of the Food Chain” — now did they? — (the Crab Larvae)

No wonder Local Fishermen are upset … (about a dozen reasons, easily come to mind.)

Local Fishermen don’t want to sell their catch, for some very good reasons, as this next clip explains:

Marine Environment Research Institute Director, Susan Shaw, said quote:

“Corexit is in the water column, just as we thought, and it is entering the bodies of animals, and it’s probably having lethal impact there.”

She said, “The Dispersant is like a Delivery System for the Oil.”

    From the Ground: BP Censoring Media, Destroying Evidence

    Riki Ott, http://www.RikiOtt.com — June 11, 2010

    Marine toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor

    In Orange Beach, people told me BP wouldn’t let them collect carcasses. Instead, the company was raking up carcasses of oiled seabirds. “The heads separate from the bodies,” one upset resident told me. “There’s no way those birds are going to be autopsied. BP is destroying evidence!

    The body count of affected wildlife is crucial to prove the harm caused by the spill, and also serves as an invaluable tool to evaluate damages to public property – the dolphins, sea turtles, whales, sea birds, fish, and more, that are owned by the American public. Disappeared body counts means disappeared damages – and disappeared liability for BP. BP should not be collecting carcasses. The job should be given to NOAA, a federal agency, and volunteers, as was done during the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska.

    NOAA should also be conducting carcass drift studies. Only one percent of the dead sea birds made landfall in the Gulf of Alaska, for example. That means for every one bird that was found, another 99 were carried out to sea by currents. Further, NOAA should be conducting aerial surveys to look for carcasses in the offshore rips where the currents converge. That’s where the carcasses will pile up–a fact we learned during the Exxon Valdez spill. Maybe that’s another reason for BP’s “no camera” policy and the flight restrictions.

    from this notoriously untrustworthy source, in blog world:

    http://monstersbehere.blogspot

    Federal laws makes BP liable for up to $50,000 per dead animal on the endangered species list, such as a Kemp’s Ridley turtle.

    It’s not just the Kemp’s Ridley. Sperm whales and hawksbill turtles are also endangered animals living in the Gulf.

    So are Brown pelicans, which have been hit hard by the oil spill. In fact, the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service lists 29 endangered species in the Gulf which could be harmed by the spill.

    BP’s Motive ?

    $$$$$$$ — Ain’t that always the case?

    Gulf Coast Locals, BP Workers, Speaking Out

    by jamess — Sat Aug 21, 2010

    til it got bumped for other “more important” tales.

  1. Went to DK, tipped and rec’d!

    Received this news from Earthjustice yesterday evening.

    Just today, university scientists presented findings that challenge EPA’s positive take on things. As the St. Petersburg Times reports:

    The oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster is still in the Gulf of Mexico and is causing ecological damage, according to new findings from the University of South Florida…the oil has become toxic to critical marine organisms.

    The Florida study also spotlights the unprecedented use of nearly 2 million gallons of dispersants. Toxic in their own right, the dispersants are also part of the ecological havoc, the findings suggest. . . . .

    Be sure to visit Earthjustice‘s link (Oil, fear . . . ) for more information and articles — they ARE on it!

  2. Oil spill adds to housing woes for Katrina victims

    By SHELIA BYRD, Associated Press Writer

    35 mins ago

    .LAKESHORE, Miss. – Pete Yarborough, a trucker who hauled seafood until the BP oil spill hit, and about 800 other households are under pressure to buy or get out of the state-owned cottages they’ve been living in since Hurricane Katrina left them homeless.

    Yarborough’s 400-square-foot cottage sits on cinder blocks 13 feet above sea level, 7 feet lower than post-Katrina standards require. He can buy the cottage for $351, but it would cost about $23,000 to raise it in the flood-prone area, and Yarborough can’t afford that.

    If he doesn’t buy the cottage, the state will begin the process of evicting him. State officials had hoped to end the cottage program by Aug. 29, the fifth anniversary of the storm, but they concede the process of evicting the residents will take a couple of more months. . . . . .

    Lea Crager-Stokes, MEMA deputy director, said the agency is willing to move the structures to mobile home parks or areas outside the floodplain. But that forces some residents to leave their own property and start paying rent.

    “A lot of these people don’t want to leave their land, which is understandable. But at the same time they’re living in an area prone to flooding and you have to weigh the pros and cons of spending government money,” she said.

    . . . .

  3. …BP sends letters to claimants saying payment checks are enclosed, but forgets

    to enclose the checks.

    Just another little slip up, I guess.  But, what the heck,  no-body’s perfect.
